Answers The Need for Better Interactive Products

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Drawing a crowd's attention is often not easy, especially in the crowded tradeshow marketplace. With emerging technology, an opportunity now exists to change the course of display design for the better.  Enter Aura, the world's largest multi-touch widescreen display that not only attracts people but also engages them.  The new product is now available to companies looking to amp up their presence at any large trade show or marketing event.  

"With Aura, we deliver the 'WOW factor' by taking proven technology and syncing it with immersive content that both engages the users and helps to convert them to customers. That's what makes Aura unique; it both entertains and efficiently conveys the message, all while the users enjoy themselves interacting with this exciting technology on a 100" screen," said Jeff Sullivan, president, HiGear Innovations.

More than a widescreen display, Aura brings interaction to life.  At 100" it is the largest multi-touch display of its kind on the market. Aura creates a spectacle on the show floor; people cannot pass by without taking notice. The sleek appearance grabs a consumer's eye and pulls them in for a closer look. The immersive interactive content keeps people from simply leaving too quickly. As crowds gather, Aura's powerful  processing and software package effortlessly engages multiple users' interactions simultaneously.  And in the midst of inundating lights and sound, the Aura's standard 12,000 lumen projection system shines bright, demanding attention from every angle. In addition there is an upgrade option for Aura  to over 24,000 lumens which amps up the experience further. '
